Tasting Notes: Enticing aromas highlight complex flavors. On the palate, this is denser and chewier, with earth-laced currant and cedary dark berry flavors, ending dry and chalky.

Galaxy Notes: Blue Rock is located in the Alexander Valley next door to Silver Oak Winery. The hillside vineyard, consisting of 46 acres, was replanted in 1982 to the 5 Bordeaux varietals. In 1993, an additional 3 acres of Beaucastle-clone Syrah were planted in the hills. The ancient olive trees are beautiful and still produce tiny amounts of organic oil. We will produce only small quantities of luxurious red wines that express their sense of place. Blue Rock, therefore, will always make wine from grapes grown exclusively on the 100 acre Estate in Sonoma, Alexander Valley. We believe that small is beautiful. In our experience, the finest, most individually expressive wines come from small places.
